2009 gt 500 Transmission removal

Has anybody dropped the transmission (Tremec 6060) out of a GT500. I have statrted to remove and have everything out if the way. My concern is the hydralic lines, slave cilinder, and throw out bearing. I have never changed a transmission with hydralic setup. Before I pull the tranny back is there anything special on taking the throwout bearing out? Does it just slid off the shaft? What about the hydralic line coming in the bell housing? How do you take it out? Do you have to disconect line and then bleed the slave cilinder? Before you ask, yes it is out of warranty. Any help is appreciated.

Nothing special, its one of the easiest transmissions R&R and bleed the clutch. Disconnect the hydraulic plastic hose at the elbow on the left side of the trans. When its back in, fill the master with fluid and just keep pumping the clutch pedal until you have a pedal. There is no bleeder to be concerned with.

Thanks guys. One other question. I know there has to be a bolt on the top, twelve o'clock position, right? It is tight under there. Have not done this in 20 years. So your saying the it just disconects at the elbow where it enters the bell housing? My problem is with second gear. I missed a shift at high RPM and ground it hard. Now you have to let engine fall to idel to shift to second without grind. Guess I missed up the synro or bent the shifting fork. Just a little nervous.

Thanks for the info. No such luck on getting it from the top. The 5.4 with a blower doesn't give any access from top. I think they used a shoe horn to get it in. LOL Let ya know how it turns out.

Once you have the crossmember and exhaust out of the way you can tilt the back of the trans down a bit which will give you more access to the top bolts. At that point just use a long extention with a 13mm swivel socket and they come out easily.

The sychros and blocking rings seem to be especially delicate in those units. Ford revised them along with the clutch. Since yours is a 2010 it should have the updated parts installed from the factory.

It has always felt like it sticks going into second gear. Real notchy. All other gears are great. I missed second at high RPM, and ground it real hard. Ever since then second grind unless you let the motor come back to idel. I have 42K miles now. out of warranty. Ford did the TSB upgrade back in March. The clutch was slipping and finally the pressure plate broke and they agreed it was a defect. Since the upgrade it has been better. Part of the TSB was to replace the syncros and in put shaft. Not sure they did that. But the clutch is much better.
